Project Description

We invite you to get involved in our winter ski & snowboard program! We offer adaptive lessons and equipment for all ability levels.

Lessons

All lessons are available in a one-on-one or a small group setting. A team of professional adaptive instructors and trained volunteers are available to meet your needs. On-snow volunteers accompany all sit-down skiers and those needing additional assistance during and after the lesson. Ski-buddy services are available for independent skiers and guiding services are available for hearing or visually-impaired skiers. It is recommended to book lessons at least one month prior to your scheduled visit so TASP can ensure lesson availability and appropriate skill level.

TASP requires a $25/lesson nonrefundable down payment due at the time of booking for standard Individualized Lessons or Buddy Lessons. If you are scheduling an Instructor Private Request Lesson, the nonrefundable down payment is $100/lesson. Down payments are applied toward final activity costs. Additionally there is a one time nonrefundable season registration fee of $10 per booking.

Group lesson prices available for groups of 8 or more. Please call 970-728-3865 for details.

Winter/Summer Cancellation & Illness Policy

Students are expected to stay home and not participate in TASP programs if they are sick. General cold and flu-like symptoms are challenging to distinguish from COVID-19 and we appreciate you joining us in our commitment to health and safety.  TASP will gladly give a credit towards a future activity or fully refund the activity cost if the participant cancels because of illness.

Down payments of $25/lesson ($100/lesson if private) are nonrefundable, unless a participant is ill and communicates this to our staff in advance of the lesson. Otherwise, if you cancel within 48 hours of the start of your scheduled lesson, then you will be charged 1/2 of your lesson cost.  If you do not call nor do you show up for your scheduled lesson, you will automatically be charged the full lesson amount the day of your scheduled lesson.

TASP charges a seasonal, one-time, truly nonrefundable $10 registration fee.

In the event that TASP cancels your lesson(s) we will gladly refund any down payment(s) previously processed (exempt $10 registration fee). This may be due to County health orders closing the ski resort and/or closing our business, as well as ‘other’ events determined by TASP that are to the discretion of TASP considered intolerable high risk in accordance with the TASP risk management plan.

Cancellation of any trips booked with a partnering organization will be up to the partnering organization and communicated to participants at the time of booking.

If you have any questions please contact the office at 970-728-3865.

Schedule a Lesson

To schedule a lesson, a ski buddy or guide, please contact our program manager at 970.728.3865 or programs@tellurideadaptivesports.org. We recommend that reservations be made at least one month prior to your scheduled visit so that we may provide you with the best possible service.

Medical documentation may be required for your participation in the adaptive program and permission from your doctor may required if you have been injured less than a year or have had recent surgery.

Eligibility for an Adaptive Season Pass

To qualify for an Adaptive Ski Pass an individual must be legally blind, deaf, or have a permanent physical or cognitive disability that requires the use of adaptive ski equipment or adaptive ski techniques to ski.
